Pisces February 18 to March 20

Sensitive to everything and everyone but having difficulty differentiating their own feelings from other peoples, Pisces individuals don’t discriminate and like chameleons, they can absorb personalities, feelings, values, and ideas.  Many are overwhelmed by their feelings and try to blot them out through the use of drugs or alcohol. This makes things worse because their bodies are as sensitive as their minds and intoxicants are poisonous to their systems.  As the last sign of the zodiac lower level Pisceans often have the feeling that they’ve been there, done that and they can’t find anything that engages them.  They are world-weary and can become cynical, thinking nothing is worth the time and effort to make a difference.

 

Higher-level Pisces are sensitive and compassionate but have learned to channel their overwhelming feelings into helping others. They are self-sacrificing and creative.  They have the rare gift of being more interested in others than they are in themselves.  In this egocentric and selfish society, it is such a relief to know a high level Pisces.

 

When the Sun is in Pisces it’s time for letting go of things, people, situations, the past to get ready for the astrological New Year which is Spring, when the Sun goes into Aries next month.  Letting go, while necessary, is often not pleasant and that’s one reason Pisces can be a sorrowful sign.  Pisces always seems to be dealing with loss.  Besides letting go of the old to usher in the new, this is a month for creative projects, particularly music, and taking nature walks.  It’s a good month for compassion, as long as we don’t wear other people’s misery like a cloak.

 

If you’re an Aries you’ll be doing more inner work this month, getting ready for your entrance upon the scene at the Spring Equinox.  While you like to be direct and a go-getter, you subconscious has another idea and plans to initiate now get sabotaged while you might feel spacey and disorganized.  Taurus spends more time with friends and working in groups, humanitarian concerns take up more time and energy.  Gemini finds that career possibilities float to the surface and there’s a longing for more creative outlets in their profession.  Cancer may like to travel during this month or focus on higher education or their spiritual path.

Leo finds that sexual issues and concerns regarding joint resources are more important while Virgo is focused this month on relationships, coming to the realization for the umpteenth time that they’re often attracted to underdogs.

Libra will find that it’s more focused on work and fellow employees.  Health issues may surface or more time is spent on improving their health.  Scorpio will enjoy more time with children and lovers, creativity will be satisfying.  Sagittarius will be focused on the home and family while Capricorn will be taking more short distance trips and consorting with siblings.  Creativity expressed through writing is also an option.  This is the month for Aquarius to spend time on their finances, which are often confusing.  Is a budget possible?

For Pisces, this is the month to come forward and be more direct, to be seen and recognized for the kind and creative soul that you are.

Ted Cruz–a Demagogic Icicle

It’s not a good idea to elect a man for president who has a discordant Sun/Pluto aspect because it means he’s a demagogue. In Ted’s case, the Sun, which represents his ego, is in Capricorn, a highly controlling sign, and a negative Pluto aspect brings in the dark side even stronger.

Ted has 3 Scorpio planets, which can be regenerative or quite nasty. Combined with Capricorn disfigured by Pluto, more than likely nasty and vengeful, in his case. His Venus Mars conjunction in Scorpio is maligned by Saturn in Taurus. Ted has a hard time feeling love anywhere in his life. His dad is represented by Saturn in Taurus, and Ted’s Sun in Capricorn. Sun/Pluto describes control issues with Dad. Saturn in Taurus opposing Venus and Mars says greedy and cold-hearted dad frustrated Ted and withdrew any love or affection to punish Ted for any youthful transgressions. Actually I doubt if Ted’s father had any real affection or love to give. Particularly since Chiron in Aries is in T-square with Sun and Pluto in Ted’s chart. A t square is when two planets are in Opposition—Chiron in Aries and Pluto in this case, and they are square a third—Sun in Capricorn. With Chiron in Aries, he’s got an open wound (Chiron) in relationship to his identity (Aries).

I think Ted has identified with the aggressor—his father, and as a result, the presidential candidate on the inside is an icicle, a demagogic icicle.

This cold control freak shouldn’t be anywhere near the White House and the presidency.

Psychic Vera’s Cosmic Advice Week of January 11

During the next seven days the Moon travels from Aquarius to Taurus.

Aquarius Monday and Tuesday morning we enjoy connections with friends and groups. Pisces Tuesday afternoon and evening, Wednesday, and Thursday are days to bring some things in our lives to an end, and enjoy films, music, and creative projects. Aries Thursday evening, Friday, and Saturday are good days for physical work and exercise. Friday we can look at new projects. Taurus Sunday is a good day for cooking, sewing, gardening, and starting a construction project.

 There are no significant planetary events this week.

 In Mayan Astrology* on January 10th the cycle changed to 1 Men, also known as Eagle. This favors self-interest but rash actions usually prove problematic.

 There is one long void-of-course Moon periods. From 5:09 PM on Monday to 3:53 PM on Tuesday.

 

Good days for planting are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and Sunday. Friday and Saturday are good days for planting onions and garlic.

 

Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.

Psychic Vera Figures Out Donald Trump

 

In her weekly address, Psychic Vera claimed that Donald Trump’s  big mouth makes him a lonely isolate.  “Trump is a low level Gemini who says something, no matter how inane, cruel or ridiculous as soon as he thinks it. This is the trademark of the negative Gemini, who splits people apart instead of bringing them together, like higher side Geminis do. The ruler of his Gemini Sun, she went on to say, is Mercury in Cancer, in a discordant aspect to Neptune. There is effectively no barrier between his conscious and subconscious minds, and no ability to censure indecorous thoughts. Neptune also creates deception and he is under the illusion that he will set the United States right again, fashioned in his own chaotic image. “Donald Trump acts like he’s demented,” Vera said.

His Gemini Sun is in the 10th House of the public, which means he demands attention. This is reinforced by a Leo Rising Sign with Mars in Leo right on the Ascendant. Leo demands attention and can’t live without it, probably to compensate for feelings of inadequacy and feeling unloved. Most likely he longed for the tenderness of mother love with Venus (love) in Cancer (mother) but it’s in conjunction with Saturn(restriction) and he never got what he wanted.

Sometimes truth slips out like when he blasted George W. Bush for sending soldiers to war in Iraq, seeing them come back wounded and then charging them over 100,000 dollars for giving a speech at a charity function. Most of the time, however, the reverse is true. There is no truth in the statement that all Latinos are criminals and rapists and should be kept out of the country. He also more recently said that 9-11 wouldn’t have happened if he was president because he doesn’t like brown people.

“Donald Trump is the fool or court jester of the Republican Party,” Vera said. He should wear a jester’s cap with jingling bells to identify him as such. He is a channel for the thoughts of other Republican candidates who may actually agree with Trump secretly but dare not blurt it out.”
